My brief review of the film
15 January 2005 | by (Perth, Australia) – See all my reviews

An initially drone sports film with a love twist, it nevertheless becomes amusing and enjoyable as it goes along. During its lengthy duration, the characters and the story both become increasing involving. There are some stylish touches at times and at times it is quite well shot, but it is no masterpiece of its type. As interesting as the story and the characters become, the film hardly does anything brilliant. It is a good film – surprisingly not too long – but nevertheless nothing too special. It was first telecast in two parts to coincide with the actual 1980 Olympics. The two-part version ran for at least three and a quarter hours; for video release the film was cut down, and that is version that I've seen (173 minutes on a PAL cassette).
